Welcome to Nangu!

Wilderness Hotel Nangu is one of a kind. This family-owned unique destination is located on the southern shore of Lake Inari, with a breathtaking open lake view as far as the eye can see, opening right from the beautiful hotel gardens – perfect for experiencing the northern lights and midnight sun alike!

The resort consists of idyllic log buildings, which gives the hotel an authentic and romantic feel of Lapland. We offer high-quality Arctic activities and personal service with a special Lappish twist, carried out with the same care and passion all of our Wilderness Hotels are known for. Located only 20-minute drive from the Ivalo village, Nangu offers exclusive wilderness experiences all year round with easy access to the airport and the surrounding areas.

Perfect Christmas

We spent Christmas at the Hotel Nangu and it could not have been more enjoyable. The people are delightful and the experiences of all the activities are amazing. The guides are such lovely people and give you a real taste of outdoor living in Finland. We especially enjoyed the dog sledding and snow shoeing and hopefully will do this again. The cold weather kit was really good.

Aurora Zone

A few days based at this hotel is an experience not to be missed. Fantastic trips out into the Finish Lapland with all cold weather gear provided and lovely local guides. The hotel is so well built and very quiet and relaxed. The staff couldn’t be more helpful. The food is delicious (although a single set menu) and with notice, they will cater for all diets. A very romantic setting for those so inclined.
